2) Biden Jobs Plan: Replace High-paying Oil/Gas Jobs with Low-Paying Green Energy Jobs

Energy and Environment (E&E) news recently compared oil and gas jobs with green energy jobs:

“Coal, oil and gas workers can make as much as $80,000 or $100,000 per year, with overtime, depending on the position and seniority.”

“As of 2019, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the average solar installation job paid $45,000 a year, a bit less than the average salary for wind energy technicians.”

E&E also notes that the job retraining programs in place since the 1990s for displaced coal workers in West Virginia have put former miners into positions that average $14 an hour.

What a deal!

We hope the millions of Americans employed by the oil and gas industry are paying attention.
